In 2011, Bethel launched the Staff Compensation and Performance Management (SCPM) project, with the goal of developing new staff compensation and performance management systems that affirm Bethel’s investment in its employees.
Boldly informed and motivated by the Christian faith, Bethel University’s mission is to educate and energize men and women for leadership, scholarship, and service. The university believes that each staff member is an investment in Bethel’s future and is committed to designing and maintaining a total compensation (salary and benefits) system that recognizes the contributions that staff members make to Bethel’s mission. The total compensation system aspires to meet the following key objectives:
The development of the staff compensation and performance management programs is the responsibility of the Board of Trustees and the Office of Human Resources. The Office of Human Resources will periodically review overall program effectiveness and propose short-term and long-term refinements.
The university is accountable to regularly review and adjust this philosophy to match changing market and economic conditions.
An advisory committee is in place to work through the project, providing updates and resources for the Bethel community along the way.
